1947 Willy-Overland Jeep Station Wagon (Wicker Edition)

Does anyone on the forum have information on the Jeep Station Wagon (Wicker Edition)? I understand it was introduced in 1947 but would like to know if the special trim package with real wicker seats was offered on later models.

Answer from "Old Willys " Forum

"Wicker" wagons were 'upscale' trim packages - ah, marketing!

'48-'50 "Station Sedan" (all 2wd) had 6 cyl, OD, stainless grill trim, deluxe upholstery, one piece rear seat, spare mounted on floor, 'Jeep' Station Sedan on glove box & hood... had basketweave adhesive decal in top panel below glass.

'53 "Utility Wagon"- same basketweave insert in top panels marketed as "Deluxe"

Willys America sells sticky repros, and there was a beautiful '53 Deluxe featured on January cover of 2009 Classic Jeeps calendar

Station Sedans (and my '49 663 - maybe all early models?) had herringbone cloth headliner

Hope that helps

It is indeed one of the upscale Jeep Station Wagons around during the late 40's-early 50's, It has some nice features like its interiors, wheels and exteriors. None was heard though on special trim package with real wicker seats was offered on later models.
